Product Description

Amazon.ca

In its best moments, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is an amusingly gonzo popcorn movie fueled by the combined manic energy of its star, Nicolas Cage, who reprises his turn as the tormented Marvel Comics antihero, and directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank, Gamer). The trio's performances in front of and behind the camera seem to indicate their wish for Spirit of Vengeance to be regarded not as a sequel to the wan 2007 Ghost Rider film, but rather an entity unto itself, and in truth, the picture does work overtime to distance itself from its predecessor, from its fast-and-loose origin rewrite at the picture's opening to its tonal shift towards darker, meaner territory. That doesn't entirely translate into a better film: though the script, based on a story by David S. Goyer (Blade, Batman Begins), bears greater resemblance to its comic book origins than its predecessor, its story, which sends the Ghost Rider on a mission to protect the son of Satan (Ciarán Hinds), is unable to thread its diverse elements, which include a listless rendition of veteran heel Blackout (Johnny Whitworth), po-faced, high-tech monks led by Christopher Lambert, and Idris Elba's fighting priest, along with assorted exorcisms, rituals, and come-and-go powers, into a cohesive and believable film. That, of course, may make no difference to viewers who have come for the sheer spectacle, which, in spite of a greatly reduced budget, is provided in spades by Neveldine/Taylor's caffeinated direction and Cage's by-now trademark acting excesses (in his most unfettered moments, Cage approaches Klaus Kinski/Timothy Carey levels of scenery consumption). In doing so, they inject a sense of breakneck fun into the proceedings, regardless of its absurd elements, sorely lacking from the previous Ghost Rider adventure. Extras are limited to six deleted and extended scenes, none of which add up to anything special; those seeking more supplemental features should investigate the Blu-ray edition, which includes commentary by Neveldine/Taylor and a feature-length making-of documentary that details the film's rather torturous path to completion. --Paul Gaita

1.0 out of 5 stars so bad it's...well, bad Sept. 16 2012
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The first Ghost Rider was a classic B movie. This was is so bad it's not even close to being in that "so bad, it's good." Forget figuring out why anything is the way it is like why is the Highlander (Christopher Lambert) a monk with scriptures tattooed in what looks like Latin all over his face? Or why Stringer Bell from "The Wire" is suddenly the Ghost Rider's best buddy or how he survived getting killed in the first ten minutes? Was it just me or when his motorcycle flew off that mountain curve, wasn't he a goner?

The most laughable thing is the movie starts out with "Eastern Europe" showing up on the screen like the movie exists in the vastness of the entire eastern half of Europe. I guess they were trying to snag that lucrative ex-Communist bloc market and not offend any one country for this mess. The worse thing about all this is how boring the movie was.

Throw in the lead actress is no Eva Mendes and looks more at home at a goth concert, and GR2 lost me.

The extras are, well, there are none on the DVD release of this. Maybe with the Blu-Ray edition you'll get an explanation of how the Ghost Rider ended up in "Eastern Europe" as the onscreen animated segment only showed me a motorcycle "driving" across the Atlantic Ocean.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whaaaa? Oct. 24 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Probably the worst movie that i've seen in the last year...Plot makes no sense and the whole movie looks like an annoying, loud rock music video..Nicholas Cage sleepwalks through the whole movie and seems to know that the film is a TURKEY...Cage just needed a paycheck I guess...Want to see a movie with nothing going for it? Watch this bomb...

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt' Work Aug. 17 2012
By MWP
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've never done a review but if Amazon is stupid enough to email me a request for a review of a product that doesn't work, never worked and they won't replace then so be it.

Don't buy this product from Amazon. The Bluray disk will not go past the opening movie previews and will never open the main menue or play the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Esprit Jan. 29 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
J'ai le plaisir de compléter ma série de Ghost Rider. Et il est dommage qu'il n'y en a pas d'autre avec cet acteur.
Le colis est arriver rapidement. Il était bien envelopper et je n'ai pas eut de mal à le développer. L'état du DVD est conforme a mes espérances et j'ai eut beaucoup de plaisir a le visionner avec mes amies. Merci
